Hey, welcome!
We already have a couple threads about Zeiss and K-mount. Users have even mailed Zeiss about it. Zeiss said they don't really need petitions, but they will produce a lens in K-mount once around 100 or so people definitely sign up for it. So if you have 100 people who want the same Zeiss lens that you want, get them together and Zeiss will probably do a production run for that lens. But some months ago they said they are not going to start offering all their SLR lenses in K-mount anytime soon. Maybe if the K-1 is a big enough success, but not anytime soon

Signed, although Leitax has it pretty much covered if Zeiss doesn't. So it's not the end of the World.

I'm in also. I think Na Horuk is correct though -- the best, although probably most difficult way, would be to see if 100 people would be willing to support one or two specific lenses and then approach Zeiss.

I'd go for a nice portrait lens or a mild telephoto lens.

Honestly, the best way is to talk to David at Leitax.

Nikon and Zeiss ZF lenses for Pentax cameras

Take a look at this thread . . .

Thank you!! I've around and submitting some photo to contest, but never write before.

Yes, the arrival of K1 was a big success, also many photographers are choosing pentax again. We already have 100 signatures. So we'll keep collecting more and wait by the moment.

Have a nice photo-weekend!

I've saw it before. What you think about the lens warranty if we dismount the lens mount? I'm not sure, but if I pay an expensive lens, I want a full warranty, even if the CZ K mount could damage the body camera (that occurs on sigma FF lenses for example, and they covered the issue).

We are 100 already

I think if they only need to change the lens mounting, like the Leitax tutorials, is more simple and accurate for CZ. Including the testing and warranty.

Also, CZ could launch like 300 lens with K mount and if they can't sell it in one year could be returned to the factory and switch the mount to other camera brand.
Other way, could be make a pre-order on CZ website.

Anyway, it would be a plus point for CZ

I think, Sigma would be more important. The Pentax bodies all offer a lot bang for the buck, but most lenses don't. A K-1 with the Sigma 24-105/4 Art would be really great.
Or a K-70 (or K-3 III) with Sigma 50-100/1.8...

My dream is to have a Sigma 2.8/120-300 Sport in K-mount. There again, my other dream is to have a Canon 2.8/400 and Canon 4/200-400 and Canon 4/600 in K-mount too with a Pentax K-1DX MkII, but I'm reaching now. Probably too much cheese before bedtime.

I'd also prefer to see Sigma art series on Pentax k mount. Hope K-1 sells well enough for them to warrant adding k mount to their system.
